Description

The Highland Trail cuts across the top of the Falls Trail System and crosses through Midway Crevasse, a narrow passageway between large blocks of Pocono sandstone conglomerates that were deposited throughout this area by glacial movements. The Highland Trail connects the two northern sections of the Falls Trail System. At least three times in the last one million years, continental glaciers buried this land under hundreds of feet of ice. This trail makes an excellent area for geological study groups.

The major highlight of this trail is Midway Crevasse where runners need to walk single file through the opening in the rock. This unusual rock feature is in stark contrast from the majority of this trail's features.
